FOREWORD

In this life we all experience trials one way or another. We can overcome adversity and turn troubles into triumphs by knowing Christ intimately. One begins your life as a Christian when you accept Jesus Christ into your heart. Many times, it is only after we have tried it our way that we realize the Sovereignty of God controls every aspect of life. When we are totally and completely surrendered to His will, only then can we begin to understand this scripture truth: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you…” (Jeremiah 1:5 NIV) My friend, God has a plan for your life and mine.


INTRODUCTION

I am deeply passionate about two things in life. One is prayer. The other is people who are hurting. I dislike seeing others in need. It breaks my heart to see sufferings of any kind. I am fiercely protective of loved ones and care deeply about people, especially those that are hurting. Whether it is emotional, psychological or physical wound, I always desire to help fix it. From a very young age, I planned to become a medical doctor only because it was a way to heal sick people. I would go on and vigorously pursue that goal. Unfortunately, several personal incidents interfered and derailed my life’s dream of attending medical school. I became very discouraged, devastated, angry and frustrated. Eventually, I managed to move beyond that. I later relocated to the United States. Throughout my life my passions have remained the same; prayer and “hurting people”. I have an aversion to hardships in people’s lives and often let my sympathy exceed my own interests. But I am happiest when those around me are happy. I get my greatest joy from seeing loved ones shine.


Prayer is my other deep passion. Prayer is the secret to my life. Prayer is my lifeline. Prayer is my favorite pastime. Prayer gives a whole new meaning to circumstances. Like so many of you, life has presented my share of challenges. Ironically, hurtful things I would rather not see others endure always come to find me. Prayer is my only solace. I cry out to God, and time after time after time, the Lord hears me and rescues me each time, His Way! Over and over, Jesus would mercifully lift me up to a different level. I would be lifted up to a different level of faith and sight. The Lord would make His face to shine upon me. Jesus would be gracious. Jesus would be, oh so, gracious to me. I have come to understand that God, in His divine Providence, orders our steps.


BIRTH OF A MINISTRY

In the early dawn of Sunday, August 1, 1999 as I slumbered, God came down to Bowie, Maryland, USA, and tapped me for kingdom work. In an amazing divine encounter, I experienced the anointing of the Lord Jesus Christ and received His command to proclaim His Word and speak to people who are hurting; specifically, the people on the continent of Africa. The magnitude of that miraculous encounter defies my expression. And to this day, still astonishes me. You see: I am not a theologian. I am not an ordained minister of the Gospel. I am simply an ordinary Christian woman who believes in the remarkable, dynamic power of prayer, and with a life passion for “hurting” people. God knew me, and would in His own time, bring both to fruition. Surely, before He formed me Jesus knew me. It became clear that God had always been in control, working things out for good. The Lord would combine two things that are most important to me and create an anointed Ministry about Him.

I wrestled with the Lord. I cried bitterly explaining that I was not able. That it was a hard call. I pleaded with Him to let me serve Him in a quieter way with my private prayer life. I pleaded that I didn’t want to be public. Of course, I was by no means a closed door Christian. I have always been open about my relationship with the Lord, and my faith. I just was not ready to speak publicly about the depth of that faith. I was afraid that such open boldness about the Lord would invite persecution from every angle. I was afraid of becoming an unending target for more trials. The Lord was firm, but merciful, patient and loving. Jesus let me know that was His plan for me. In the end God won. I surrendered to His perfect plan for my life.

In the days following there were several intense sacred revelations. All I could do was cry like a baby, day and night. When I tried to explain to my husband, fellow believers, pastors and family, all I did was weep bitterly. That was the only way I could handle what was happening. In time, I experienced a great decrease and allowed the Lord to increase in me. I stood in awe of Jesus Christ and His transforming power. God does not force us, but the Lord makes us willing.

Following that momentous week my doubts and fears abound. But, the Holy Spirit gave me strength and courage. Through the scriptures and His presence, the Lord comforted me and calmed my fears, urging me to go forth and fulfill His command. The Holy Spirit softly prompted me to do it for Christ who loves me so much: Do it for the glory it will bring to His name. I finally found rest in the fact that a loving God that He is, knows best. I relied on one of my favorite Bible verses, “As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him” (2 Samuel 22:31 NIV). I came to the realization that my God is an awesome God. The Lord only gives good things.

That was the birth of this Spiritual Motivational Outreach Ministry, and so named DO IT FOR CHRIST. “IT” in this context means “Living”.
